Walks range from 0.3 to 5 miles, depending on the group and destination.
Walking groups meet at MetroLink stations or MetroBus stops and take Metro transit to the destination. We walk in a variety of places such as Forest Park or Carondelet Park, downtown St. Louis or Belleville Illinois. Groups often finish at a unique shop or stop for lunch or snack before heading back. We ask that participants be aware of their own walking abilities and sign up for the group that meets their needs. Early registration for the Fall 2023 can be found here. Packets will begin to be mailed in August.
New participant kits include a pedometer, weekly walk logs, transit tickets, St. Louis maps, safety tips, and a Ten Toe Express® belt bag to hold it all.
